Windows 7: Windows Gadget bar preventing shutdown

Windows Gadget bar preventing shutdown

I have three things running on the Gadget Bar and that is the Weather app, Daemontools app, and TuneUp 2011. The weather app is the one that seems to be holding up the shutdown.

Beyond not using the damn weather app, does anyone know of a fix for this?

You could use a DIFFERENT weather app...?

I'm using the only one that came with Windows. The most popular one I found was weatherbug and IIRC back in the day, they used to be shady somewhat.

I use WeatherPro, and it works fine for me. I remember the WeatherBug thingy from the early '90s when it was loaded with spyware and the like...
